At the turn of the century, Richard J. began to build an 1/4" scale model of the Cole Bros. Circus as it appeared during the late 1930s through the 1940s. Photos and information on this circus are used in building the equipment. These models consist of railroad cars and wagons. Each wagon has been built using basswood, brass and wagon wheels. While the railroad cars are built from kits, the wagons are built in scale from scratch.
Several new wagons made their appearance in 2006. A Hippo wagon was added along with the wild animal area wagon that is currently at the Circus World Museum.
